Matt Kolsky is a Chicagoland native who first fell in love with the Bay Area as a fresh-faced co-ed matriculating at Pomona College in Southern California. He has plied his trade in the sports media since his first move to the Bay in 2004 — as a newspaper stringer covering high school sports, a radio producer, a NBA G-League broadcaster and countless other odd jobs. He has worked his way through the industry while making a home on the Berkeley/Oakland border. For the last seven years Kolsky has been an afternoon radio host in the Bay Area, and now also covers the sports scene as a columnist for the San Francisco Examiner. His particular brand of strong commentary and caustic wit gives him a unique approach to the region’s sports teams, and creates a strong mix alongside Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto during afternoon drive on 95.7 the Game.
